The Porto Protocol
Porto Protocol is a key outcome of the Climate Change Leadership conferences, an undertaking by all participants to adopt and promote the principles and measures established at the summits, by signing the Letter of Principles for The Porto Protocol.
The city of Porto is a natural stage for this commitment. It is an adaptable and entrepreneurial city which values innovation and proactive leadership but also respects and protects its heritage. It is one of the world’s great wine capitals and the hub of some of Europe’s most diverse vineyard regions, including some that are potentially at great risk from climate change.
The Porto Protocol Foundation is a non-profit corporate institution, founded by Taylor’s Port, that counts with hundreds of members, united by a binding commitment to make a greater contribution to mitigate climate change.
Born out of the wine industry and spread across industries from its whole value chain, it was created under the belief that, if we share our successes and experiences, our response against climate change will be more effective.
We work as an open and shared platform, a place of inspiration for change and collaborative sharing, a dynamic database of resources and workable solutions from which companies and individuals from all over the world, wishing to take action, can benefit and contribute. More than a call to action, it is a binding commitment by its signatories, from whatever sector, to make a greater contribution to fight climate change.
The Great Wine Capitals Global Network and The Porto Protocol Foundation anounce that they are going to work together towards a sustainable future.
MEDCLIV (Mediterranean Climate Vine & Wine Ecosystem)
The MEDCLIV project aims at experimenting participatory approaches to design and share co-constructed adaptation (and to some extent mitigation) pathways for the vine and wine value chain in Mediterranean territories. change
